santa! I know him!

Blame this title on the fact that we are on Elf viewing number three of the season. And it only recorded on the 27th. Letteria is nothing if not thorough.

Every year on Black Friday I drag my kid(s) and Matt to Elizabeth Farms to visit Santa. We no longer go there for the real live tree, but that doesn't mean we don't drive over the river and through the woods to get there just for Santa.

They have some animals and a gift shop with free hot chocolate. They have horse drawn wagons and a train display (David loves nothing like he loves trains). They have old store window displays and of course, Santa. They have a lot of things.They even have mini candy canes for the kids.

Oh thank you kids. For participating. Why would you do something as cooperative as just sit on his lap like normal children? Why did mom and dad have to join? Why couldn't you smile? 

Because I felt Letty's cute outfit was neglected with the Santa shot I had to try and get a good one myself later when scary old men with white beards and a suit of red weren't around. That girl. Her and I. We get along like something worse than oil and water. Grrr. 

See? It ain't all roses and smiles. Ain't all roses.



  1. That sounds like a really neat place. Love the family photo. That last picture of Letty is priceless. :)

  2. I am just in love with the color, tone and mood of your photos. I'm such a picture nerd, and it sounds silly, but nothing brings a good story like this to life quite like photos. And not just any photos. Photos with personality. Photos with depth. Photos that sing. Photos like yours.

  3. The good old santa photo! We attempted one of these a couple days ago…it was a no go! Haha

  4. I love the farm, so cute! Also, that is a hilarious photo of Letty.

    Also. I love the photos on the tree.

  5. Haha I can't stop laughing at the Santa picture...sorry! ;) whose white tree is that with Letty posing? So pretty!

  6. love it! I'm actually grew up in Santa Claus, IN and if your kids write a letter to Santa you can send it to the post office in Santa Claus, IN and they will get a letter back…just thought I'd let you know!! :-)


I love hearing from you. Honest I do. You won't find my response to you here, but in your inbox. F.Y.I.
